“Centuries after it was enshrined in the Bible, woman-bashing as law and public morality is still a cornerstone of the West's unshakeable faith.”

  1. The Heretic Says:

    If memory serves, Paul was the original misogynist.

  2. Jeff Says:

    Not even close, sir. Check out the Torah / Talmud and you’ll see that women and children were nothing more than chattel there, so Saul of Tarsus was just spreading a well established tradition.

  3. The Heretic Says:

    I was strictly speaking about the bible. I defer to your knowledge of other religious texts.

  4. Jeff Says:

    TH,

    The Torah / Talmud are referred to in Christianity as the Old Testament, sir. I’m so surprised that you didn’t know that as to quote my sophomore World History teacher from HS, who was also a Greek Orthodox Sunday school teacher, “And you call yourself Christians”, except, of course, that you don’t. (You should recognize that World History was taught from a SOMEWHAT Eurocentric standpoint 40 some years ago, which automatically entangled it with Christian history.)
